On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Tshego Khutsoane about No Easter Sunday for Queers at The Market Theatre.
Renos spoke to Namatshego (Tshego) Khutsoane about No Easter Sunday For Queers, the new play on at The Market Theatre, which features a Distell National Playwright Competition winning script.
Namatshego Khutsoane is an actor, director, applied drama and theatre practitioner, facilitator, Performance Studies lecturer, Director of Drama for Life (Wits University) Mvuso Schools and Community Education Project and holds an MBA in Creative Industries.
No Easter Sunday For Queers follows the love story of Napo and Mimi. The lovers, through the Easter Sunday sermon, return on the anniversary of their death to make the Father reckon with the present, the past and a crucifixion that he must account for. The alter is a cross and the subconscious a courtroom where the dead seek justice for a sin committed by their perpetrators. The protagonists cannot tell the past from the present and scripture from the truth. Every year, on Easter Sunday the church is made to remember.
Koleka Putuma’s script was the overall winning play that was selected to be produced and staged as part of the Distell National Playwright Competition. She becomes the second winner of this new competition that aims at showcasing fresh storytellers and new voices. The competition is for debut playwrights who have not yet had their work staged.
